Designing Heating and Cooling Systems in Large Buildings

Have you ever wondered what goes into a heating or air conditioning system for a large office building or another large building like a mall or a school? My name is Evelyn, and I am an HVAC architect. I design heating and air conditioning systems for large, corporate buildings. Making sure that a large building with many rooms or offices is efficiently heated and cooled is a very large job and is much more complicated than simply heating or cooling a home. This blog will educate the reader on how heating and cooling jobs this large are designed and completed.

Your Air Conditioning And How A Technician Can Help

Nicole Jacobs

Calling an air conditioning technician is necessary in many situations. It's done to ensure the proper functioning of the air conditioning system, to ensure it has been properly serviced and maintained, and to help it have as long a lifespan as it should. Keeping the air conditioning in good condition can also help the home be energy efficient, keep the home comfortable, and ensure that the air conditioner is safe to run. You can learn more about when you should reach out to the air conditioning technician in this article. 

Handling the installation of a new air conditioner

If you are going to have a new air conditioner put in, then you should have a professional technician handle the job. There are many things that can go wrong during the process if the person installing it isn't fully capable. A professional air conditioning technician can assess your cooling needs and recommend the right type and size of the system. They can also help install that system in a way that helps the air conditioner remain reliable, safe, and efficient.

Helping with routine maintenance

Regular maintenance is critical to the smooth and efficient running of your air conditioner. You should call the technician to schedule the air conditioner maintenance each year before you start using it again. This gives them a chance to service it and make sure nothing happened to it while it was off that could cause it to malfunction. Some things done during these maintenance visits include cleaning the system, checking the system for any issues, verifying all settings are correct, and making any small repairs. The system is also checked for leaks, and after repairing the leaks, more refrigerant will be added to replace what was lost. 

Locating and repairing problems

If there are any issues with the way the air conditioning is running, then the air conditioning technician can come to find the cause and repair the issue. Some issues that could cause you to call the technician include the system suddenly not cooling the way it should, hearing strange sounds coming from the system, smelling something coming from the vents, smelling a burning odor, or noticing a significant increase in your energy bills. 

Keep in mind that it's always best for you to have a professional air conditioning technician install, service, and work on your air conditioner. Not only does this let you know the job is being done correctly, but it also helps keep the warranties valid. For more information on air conditioning, contact a professional near you.
